Last weekend we went to see the movie "Searching for Sugar Man", which documents the transformation of a country and the man who sang the songs that inspired its citizens. Sixto Rodriguez was a folk singer from Detroit in the early 70's with a promising career who ended up disappearing from the public eye. A bootleg tape of his music found its way to South Africa, becoming a favorite to those young listeners who were looking for a life beyond aparthiod. Rodriguez, himself, is a man of emense musical talent who is as comfortable on stage in front of an audience of thousands as he is carrying a refrigerator on his back out of a house that is being demolished. He has navigated for many years in a world where his talent stands far beyond his living conditions but his character never wavers. The movie is a bit hard to follow at times and the scenes have a vintage quality to them, for better or worse. I heard fellow movie goers cry, cheer, and sing along. This film is a testiment to the old adage that we never know exactly what kind of impact we will have on others or how far the reach of our existance may extend. I highly recommend seeing it. We bought the sound track and have been enjoying it as great music and also a way to reflect on the depth of this story.
